Be sure you have the correct heat and light. The heat in particular will encourage movement and help with digestion. Do keep offering warm soaks. Even if you don't see your tortoise drink, soaking will help.

Here is a good link to information on lighting for a tortoise.

Keep it slow and steady.

Sounds like your tortoise is in hibernation mode. How old is it?
